CAE has won US$90.5 million worth defence contracts including a Mitsubishi Electric order to provide components of the Magnetic Anomaly Detection (MAD) system for twenty P-1 maritime patrol aircraft of Japan.
The P-1 aircraft is Japan's indigenously developed long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) platform. Complete AN/ASQ-508 MAD systems for the P-1 are manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation Kumakura Works under license to CAE.
The CAE AN/ASQ 508 is the advanced MAD systems in the market and will be integrated with the P-1's mission system to be used operationally during anti-submarine warfare missions.
Besides, CAE annoujnced today that it has also bagged US Air Force contract to deliver MQ-1 Predator/MQ-9 Reaper remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) aircrew training services.
The US contract is intended to increase the number of training instructors it employs to support the USAF's MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper training programs.
The majority of the new instructors will be based at Holloman Air Force Base (AFB) in New Mexico, which is the site of the formal training units for both the MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper.
"Unmanned aerial system pilot training in the US Department of Defense has received significant attention since the release of a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report several months ago, and the Air Force is taking a number of initiatives to improve UAS pilot training," said Ray Duquette, President and General Manager, CAE USA.
"One of these initiatives is to address the shortage of instructors at the formal training units at Holloman. The comprehensive training for aircrews is delivered by both active-duty and contract instructors who work as an integrated team,” Duquette added.
The contracts also include delivery of C-130J simulator for Lockheed Martin. CAE will also design and manufacture a C-130J/LM-130J weapon systems trainer for Lockheed Martin's new international training centre to be built in Marietta, Georgia.
CAE and Eurofighter Simulation Systems (ESS) have renewed collaboration agreement related to the provision of visual systems on the Eurofighter Typhoon Aircrew Synthetic Training Aids (ASTA) program. Under the Eurofighter ASTA program, ESS serves as the prime contractor and design authority for the comprehensive suite of Eurofighter training systems operated by the four Eurofighter partner nations (United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, and Italy) as well as Austria
